Wine Enthusiast - Catalog abuseI made the mistake of ordering a gift for someone from this catalog nearly 2 years ago.
The W.E. put me on a mailing list (auto add) and has bombarded me with catalogs ever since.
I have called and asked to be taken off the list, I have sent back labels, nothing works. I'm assured by phone that I've been removed from the list, and yet they still come, like locusts raining down on my head.
The catalogs come constantly, with no new reasons to be looking at them. Same crap, same inflated prices. Just more paper to junk up my mailbox.
What's amusing is that the cover of the catalog proudly states their green ethos with post-consumer recycling of its paper. GREAT, now how about not sending out the recycled paper over, and over, and over again, wasting time, money, postage, and the efforts of printers and mail carriers, to send the catalogs to people who don't want them or need them?
If I still had a cat, I'd have litter box material. Now, I just dump them by the dumpster so that local unfortunates will have paper for personal hygiene, which is of greater value to them than the catalog is to me. THAT, my friends, is very eco-friendly and takes Wine Enthusiasts' interest in post-consumer waste a few steps further.
